Before you get too excited, there is one small catch. These new lanes are going to come with a fee... Yep, they will be tolled express lanes. The new express lanes will add an additional lane to I-25 and also widen bridges, create a new pedestrian access at Kendall Parkway and connect the Cache la Poudre River Regional Trail under I-25.

The project is expected to cost approximately $248 million dollars with the expectation of being completed in late 2021.
